A little update!
I think this little pile of books sums my life up quite nicely at the moment; driving lessons, Life of Pi & more driving lesson things.
So last night I got in contact with a driving instructor. If we rewind back six years or so, I started to learn to drive - I had a terrible instructor (and generally couldn't afford to be shouted at) so I dropped after seven lessons and never really spoke about it again. Until recently.
I feel like driving will give me a lot of freedom, and as a Gemini / a person with 'Wanderlust' that is pretty important to me! Also, I have this year 'free' as I didn't get onto my PGCE Primary course (every cloud & all that), so it seems like the perfect time to do it. I have my DVA Theory Test disc & AA books at the ready to help me, as I'm definitely starting from scratch again! My first lesson is on Monday and I'm really kinda nervous, although this new teacher seems nice & friendly so I'm sure all will be ok.
Next up is Life of Pi. I went to see the film last Wednesday and fell in love with it. I'm guilty of not reading the book beforehand, but as soon as I got home from the cinema I went straight online & bought it. I couldn't recommend everyone go see it enough. Take tissues - is all I'm saying. 3D glasses can only hide you for so long! (although you might not all be such big babies as me). It's a truly beautiful film, and I'm looking forward to getting stuck in to the book.
Speaking of buying, I figured I would talk about the spending ban! The only thing I have bought is said book, which I didn't particularly mention in my personal 'rules' (aka. in my eyes I haven't cheated!). I don't think I could have resisted buying it, the film just touched me too much not to give it a go. Apart from that I genuinely haven't spent a penny of makeup, skincare or eating out in town.
I thought I'd do a little collection of things I would have probably already bought by now if wasn't for the little nagging voice in the back of head saying, "wait until April!".
I've wanted Russian Red for so long now, I can't wait until this is over so I can buy it! Nail Envy is because I'm hoping to grow my nails, finally, this year and this looks like a product that will help battle many years of chewing them. The lip perfectors have always looked lovely and they're still there in my 'must buy soon' part of my mind! What are you lusting after?
How is your spending ban going, if you're doing it, and what are you looking forward to achieving this year?
